This is hopefully the conclusion to my stupid action movie phase of posting. It was the holidays, I had to watch a ton of terrible action movies. This one wasn't that bad all things considered, Nicolas Cage was awesome as usual, the entire setting of the movie(Bangkok) was perfect, and even the side characters made sense. The huge problem was with the ending.
Why, Why, Why, Why would Nicolas Cage's character kill himself in the end? What possibly happened where he couldn't get away anymore? Could he not just walk over and shoot the dude? There was no point to that, so the entire movie sucks because the director/editor/everyone involved was too chicken to put in a badass ending where Cage blows the bad guys head off and runs away from the cops and retires to a tropical paradise. This is why I don't completely like too many movies, because even if the entire movie goes right they'll always ruin the ending by trying to make it "happy" or something like that.
Well this has been a rant about what could've been a good movie. I need to walk into Hollywood and slap some directors/writers in the face and make them produce my movie. I call it "The Best Movie Ever Made, it's about a guy that goes around blowing stuff up, making stupid jokes, and ripping peoples throats. Oh wait, that movie's already been made and it's called MacGruber, one of my favorite movies of all time.
